This article will discuss the use of the Intuwiz G-code Generator program to create a CNC program for machine tools with CNC systems for engraving a watch dial.

Open the Intuwiz G-code Generator program and go to the “Engraving” tab.

Intuwiz G-code Generator.Engraving.

The CNC program for engraving the watch dial will be composed of three subprograms. Subprogram for engraving minute markers, subprogram for engraving hour markers and subprogram for engraving the four big hour markers (for numbers 12. 3, 6 and 9).

Let's start creating a subprogram for engraving minute markers.
Click the appropriate control on the "Engraving" tab.

Engraving a minute markers for a watch dial.

After that, a dialog will open for entering the initial data necessary to create a CNC program for engraving minute markers of the clock face.

Engraving minute markers for clock face.

We assign the length of the markers a = 4 and the radius of the circle R = 10.

Click "GENERATE G-CODE".

Create a folder for placing our CNC program, in it we create a text file in which we place the created CNC subprogram for minute markers of the clock dial.

In a similar way, we make a subprogram for engraving hour markers, setting the markers length a = 5 and using another dialog to enter data.

Engraving hour markers

Insert the created second subprogram at the end of created text file.

Next, create a CNC subprogram for the markers: 12 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours and 9 hours. The markers length are a = 6.

CNC subprogram for the markers: 12 hours, 3 hours,

Also place the created CNC program at the end of our created text file.

Save the text file and preview the created CNC program for the CNC systems for engraving the clock face in the Intuwiz CNC program.
